Description: Metro Manila is an urban region in the Philippines which has numerous environmental and sanitation challenges. Some of the biggest challenges that this capital region faces in terms of environmental health and management, are related to water pollution, inadequate wastewater management, poor air quality, exposure to hazardous substances and deficient management of toxic and solid waste among other environmental hazards (ADB 2009, Department of Environment and Natural Resources – Philippines 2011, Kim Oahn et al. 2006, Suk et al. 2003 & ADB 2009). It is well known that environmental exposures, like the ones mentioned above, have been linked to negative health outcomes, such as hepatitis A, dysentery, typhoid fever, schistosomiasis, leptospirosis, skin diseases, poisoning, acute respiratory infections, asthma, learning disabilities, behavioral problems, among others (Pronczuk-Garbino 2005).
